Top Eyes-On-You Bags: I Spy a Trend

Do you ever feel like you’re being watched? Maybe it’s because there are suddenly too many bags to count out there with eyes of their own!

MCM Stark Edelin Baby Jeweled Backpack

MCM Stark Edelin Baby Jeweled Backpack: Back(pack) It In

It’s best to start with the truth: I am not a fan of the big studded backpacks from MCM, especially the fully monogrammed ones. (Just being totally honest.)

Top 5 Metallic Must-Haves

Top 5 Metallic Must-Haves: That’s a Real Shiner

It’s time to up the high-shine factor. Not just because it’s the holiday season; even without the upcoming onslaught of soirees, something about mirrored accessories feels so good right now. In the age of the selfie-obsessed, we could all use some more personal reflection! Even if it’s in the form of seriously glamorous accessories.

Rihanna on Repeat with Reece Hudson: Only Bag in the World

Unlike most celebrities, RiRi isn’t one to follow style rules. She wears bras as tops, doesn’t wear bras with tops, and if she loves a bag, she will carry it over and over again.

Perrin Paris Flap Backpack

Perrin Paris Flap Backpack: Flip for the Flap

Three words: simple, sleek, and thoroughly functional. Okay, so that’s more like four words, but you get the idea. Perrin Paris has delivered one of the best backpack designs I’ve ever seen.

Top Nude Bags

Top Nude Bags: Neutral Nation

My nude obsession continues. Actually, it’s only gaining steam. After a streak of blindingly bright neon trends, all things washed out have never looked chicer.
